Legend has it that Intel prepared the Core i5-7660X three years ago, but never officially released the processor. A Chinese Twitter user recently obtained a working sample of the forgotten child from the Skylake-X family.The Core i5-7660X clearly uses the Skylake microarchitecture. Therefore, the processor is manufactured on Intel’s 14nm+ process node and slides into the LGA2011 socket just like any other Skylake-X chip. The Core i5-7660X inherited all of the attributes of Skylake-X, like support for quad-channel memory (128GB max) and AVX-512 instructions.Had Intel released the Core i5-7660X, the hexa-core processor would have been an interesting offering at the time. The Core i5-7660X wouldnot only the chipmaker’s first Core i5 HEDT (high-end desktop) processor, but also the first Core i5 SKU to support quad-channel memory.
